**** UBUNTU (testing in 6.10 and 7.04)


For usbstick D-Link DWK-G122 rev. C1 (ID 07d1:3c03) you use the ralink chipset driver: (use lsusb command to see)

1. start the system with the device disconnected to avoid conflicts

2. install the correct driver

- download serialmonkey driver:

- extract and install (read file README for details):

since the Module directory:

sudo make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe rt73

3. unloads the modules in the system start that do not work correctly (use the lsmod command to see entry usbcore while device is connected)

- edit file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist:

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

- adds the lines:

# causes the conflict with the correct driver rt73
blacklist rt73usb
blacklist rt2570

4. connect the device and temporally unloads the modules to avoid to restart:

sudo rmmod rt73usb
sudo rmmod rt2570

5. if there is not errors, configures your connection with the network administrator

**** OPENSUSE (testing in 10.2 and 10.3)

Use commands in terminal. Use the commands separated by | in different shots.


# install rt73 driver (, create connection and configure this with traditional method option
# create a script file with this lines to rise device on boot and copy to: sudo cp <directory>/pre-up-wlan0 /etc/sysconfig/network/scripts/pre-up-wlan0
# change permission: sudo chmod 755 /etc/sysconfig/network/scripts/pre-up-wlan0
# edit file /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan0 and add the line PRE_UP_SCRIPT='pre-up-wlan0': su | gedit /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan0

hi friends

I don´t want to open another thread making a related question.

Well, until now, I had followed always this tutorial for run my USB adapter D-LINK.

But I have changed my computer, and now, when I go to the serialmonkey page, I found that this project doesn´t support the legacy drivers, and they say that the drivers are included into the kernel, since April-2009.

I have just installed Slackware 13.1 (kernel and my USB doesn´t work.

My lsmod shows rt73usb, rt2x000usb and rt2x00lib

Does anybody know how must I install this USB device?

Thank you and sorry for my english!
